Overview of this book

The book starts with a hands-on Day 1 chapter, covering the basics of the Metasploit framework and preparing the readers for a self-completion exercise at the end of every chapter. The Day 2 chapter dives deep into the use of scanning and fingerprinting services with Metasploit while helping the readers to modify existing modules according to their needs. Following on from the previous chapter, Day 3 will focus on exploiting various types of service and client-side exploitation while Day 4 will focus on post-exploitation, and writing quick scripts that helps with gathering the required information from the exploited systems. The Day 5 chapter presents the reader with the techniques involved in scanning and exploiting various services, such as databases, mobile devices, and VOIP. The Day 6 chapter prepares the reader to speed up and integrate Metasploit with leading industry tools for penetration testing. Finally, Day 7 brings in sophisticated attack vectors and challenges based on the user’s preparation over the past six days and ends with a Metasploit challenge to solve.

Penetration testing with Metasploit

Covering the basics commands of the Metasploit framework, let us now simulate a real-world penetration test with Metasploit. In the upcoming section, we will cover all the phases of a penetration test solely through Metasploit except for the pre-interactions phase which is a general phase to gather the requirements of the client and understand their expectations through meetings, questionnaires, and so on.

Assumptions and testing setup

In the upcoming exercise, we assume that we have our system connected to the target network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi. The target operating system is Windows Server 2012 R2 with IIS 8.0 running on port 80 and HFS 2.3 server running on port 8080. We will be using the Kali Linux operating system for this exercise.
